The Flash director Andy Muschietti shared that the upcoming DC film will be full of surprises.
A lot is unknown about Andy Muschietti’s The Flash, including the film’s villain. Principal photography just wrapped, but we still managed to get a glimpse at the picture during DC FanDome last Saturday. The FanDome sneak peek gave us a great look at the new suit Ezra Miller will wear in the film, our first official look at Sasha Calle’s Supergirl, along with several teases of Michael Keaton’s Batman and his iconic Batmobile.
The footage also featured another Barry Allen, which has lead to lots of speculation online. The Flash director Andy Muschietti suggested at China’s DC FanDome event that this is all just the tip of the iceberg:
“We can tell you that there are surprises. We cannot reveal what they are, but they will probably blow your socks off. They will. I think the less we talk about it the better. There’s excitement behind the camera about those surprises, but you’re better not knowing them until you see them on the big screen.
Directed by Andy Muschietti from a script written by Birds of Prey scribe Christina Hodson, The Flash will be inspired by the Flashpoint comic storyline, which followed The Flash as he navigated an altered DC Universe. Written by Geoff Johns and penciled by Andy Kuber, Flashpoint radically altered the status of the DC Comics universe and led to the launch of the New 52 titles. It is currently unknown how much inspiration the upcoming Ezra Miller film will take from the comic.
The upcoming solo film will star Ezra Miller reprising their role as Barry Allen from Justice Leauge joined alongside Kiersey Clemons as Iris West, Maribel Verdú as Nora Allen, Ron Livingston replacing Billy Crudup as Henry Allen, Sasha Calle debuting as Supergirl, and the return of Michael Keaton and Ben Affleck as their versions of Batman.
The Flash is set to hit theaters on November 4, 2022. Stay tuned for all the latest news on all of DC’s upcoming projects. You can also subscribe to Heroic Hollywood’s YouTube channel for more video content in the future!
